2018 System Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety --SEIPS

2018 System Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety --SEIPS

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR APRIL 2018!

Statement of Need

This short course is designed to provide an understanding of human factors and systems engineering and how this approach to patient safety can improve system performance and safety, prevent harm when failure does occur, help systems recover from failure, and mitigate further harm.

Introduction

              boats

The Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety (SEIPS) has been a leader in comprehensively applying Human Factors and Systems Engineering to the patient safety challenge. As part of this effort, the SEIPS Short Course was developed by Professor Pascale Carayon and her colleagues at the Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement at the University of Wisconsin in 2004. It has been highly successful and repeated yearly until 2015, when the Center decided to transfer the sponsorship of the course to the UF Center for Simulation, Education, and Safety Research in Jacksonville, FL. The last session of the SEIPS Short Course (its 12th) was held in Jacksonville, April 3 -7, 2017. The next session will also be held in Jacksonville April 9 - 13, 2018. It will be co-directed by Professor Robert Wears and Dr Shawna Perry, who have both been regular faculty in the course since its founding, with the continuing guidance and support of Professor Carayon, under the guiding philosophy of keeping the same faculty and content that has been so successful in Madison, but simply relocating the course to Florida.

Specific Learning Objectives

This five-day course for professionals presents nationally recognized speakers discussing a variety of Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Patient Safety topics. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
